Yep, it's the Dead.

I'd have a different answer if it was a studio album choice for the Desert Island (and then i'd have a hell of a struggle between Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" and Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" but since you asked for a desert island choice is:

Evan's Fieldhouse, DeKalb, Illinois, 10-29-77.

The fluidity of the playing, combined with the sheer rock n roll energy and note-perfect renditions of the songs (my favorite all-time EYES, ST. STEPHEN, JACK STRAW, MIGHT AS WELL and BERTHA all appear in this show), make it a performance that continues to stun, amaze, comfort, and inspire every time I hear it.
